ERJ staff report (DS)
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - On Saturday thousands of members and supporters of The United Steelworkers (USW) throughout the US distributed information about Cooper Tire's unfair and illegal lockout of 1,050 Findlay, Ohio workers at over 125 retail tyre stores and service centres throughout the country.
The union is seeking to educate the tyre-buying-and-selling public about the lockout at Cooper and to ask store owners and managers to sign onto a letter asking CEO Roy Armes and North American President Chris Ostrander to end the lockout and return to the bargaining table to negotiate with the USW in good faith for a fair contract in Findlay.
